Just booked an on-campus interview for late February. Submitting a LOCI, additional rec letter, and I suppose grades from last semester. Is there anything else that might help? 5 additional rec letters, maybe?

NORTHWESTERN PLEASE LOVE ME.

A couple of C-notes along with your LOCI should do the trick...

Yes, except they nixed the strategic plan one. Now it's just Why X and diversity statement.

No I meant for hold candidates. Last year they had 3 recommended supplemental essays for held candidates to write.

I think I'm gonna visit NU in the next few weeks. I did an on campus interview, so that means I shouldn't try to set up a hold interview, right?

They said it's only for applicants that either haven't interviewed or interviewed off-campus.

I'm sorry you were held, but it makes me feel better about my hold.

Didn't Northwestern play with my emotions enough over the course of 4 years (it's my alma mater lol) I got an e- mail saying a decision has been made - I go to check it out and it says 'status will be available in 24 hours' WTH. Anyone else get this?

I'm assuming I am a member of this last hold group. I got an email saying my decision letter is ready at 4:45, though when I click on the pdf it doesn't show and says the last name field is required. I am guessing its bc I am doing this on my phone .. ironically i'm currently on a layover in Chicago.

Held today as well. I know it was a big reach with my numbers and lack of work experience, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little disappointed.

He is awesome. I thought he should have been the Super Bowl MVP.

I'm also AJD, but did not hear anything today. Is it possible they will continue sending out emails tonight? or are we to wait another day?

Hmmm...not sure if they'll send anything else tonight. Maybe it's in the queue since there were so many decisions released today??

Just a small rant - I hope they do release decisions today since they said they wouldl. Or at least give us an update. I know they're probably overworked and under a lot of pressure dealing with things behind the scenes that we can't see. But, it does help to communicate any delays or anything like that.

They just tweeted:


@nulawadmissions
NU Law Admissions
Due to technical issues, our AJD decisions will not go out today, but tomorrow. We apologize for the delay.
